During yesterday’s loss to the Cowboys, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick suffered, what head coach Andy Reid deemed during his Monday press conference as a “pretty significant concussion,” per Ian Rapoport. Eagles coach Andy Reid on Vick: “Michael, obviously, has a concussion. A pretty significant concussion. He was a little foggy last night.” — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 12, 2012 Since they’re calling it a “significant concussion” it’s safe to assume that Vick will be out next week against the Redskins. With that being said, Nick Foles would then be in line to make his first career start. In relief for Vick yesterday, Foles was 22-for-32 with 219 yards passing with a touchdown and an interception. Reid went on to say during his press conference that he’s “excited to see” Foles play, adding he’s “confident” he will do a “nice job.” Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports reports that sources informed him that there’s a good chance that Vick will be “rested” for the remainder of the season. The source also added that Reid may end up using the development of Foles as an attempt to save his job. “I’m 99 percent sure that’s exactly what you’re going to see happen,” a source told Cole Monday morning. “Andy is going to go to [owner] Jeff [Lurie] and [general manager] Howie [Roseman] and say, ‘Let’s go with Foles and make the transition to the next era.‘ ”
